5 Best Clean Beauty Brands for Mindful Women

Nov 5, 2021

As a skincare enthusiast, I want to be as conscious about the ingredients I use on my skin as the ones that I eat or drink. That’s why I take great care in crafting my skincare routines, and why most of my products come from clean beauty or esthetician brands. If you’re a fellow skincare junkie, you’ll find these suggestions helpful.

My Top 5 Clean Beauty Brands

Indie Lee

Indie Lee is a clean beauty brand made for all skin types, whether you have normal, oily, dry, or combination skin. I love all of their products, but one of my favorites is the Brightening Cleanser, which uses a vegan formula. It cleanses your skin without leaving it tight and dry—and the delicious strawberry scent is an absolute mood booster in the morning. Not only is it a cleanser, it doubles as an exfoliating mask when you leave it on for 10 minutes.

Renée Rouleau

Renée Rouleau is a celebrity esthetician with her own well-crafted skincare line. I use the Energy Boosting Toner every day to brighten my face. This product also adds plenty of dewy hydration to my skin. Better yet, it’s vegan and free of animal testing.


Ilia is amazing for their buttery smooth, tinted lip balms. Not only are their formulas creamy and moisturizing on your lips, you can easily keep it subtle or build color for a bolder look.

Their Super Serum Skin Tint is another one of my go-tos. This light-coverage mineral foundation contains SPF 40 to help protect your skin from sun damage while evening your skin tone and softening any fine lines

Sunday Riley

Sunday Riley is a part of my evening routine. The Good Genes Lactic Acid Treatment is great for clearing away dull skin and revealing the fresh, bright skin underneath.

Their Luna Sleeping Night Oil is another great anti-aging product that helps hydrate my skin, which tends to get very dry.

Saint Jane

Saint Jane is always a great start to my morning. Their C-Drops help you reduce the look of signs of aging so you can maintain smooth, supple skin for longer. The Luxury Beauty Serum is a wonderful complement to leave your skin with a glow.
